    printing to Windows LPD printer from Unix

    Locked

    by yong98zhang ·

    We are having problem(it just won’t print)printing to a Windows LPD printer from Unix(Solaris and AIX)when the enable advanced printing features feature for the windows print queue is unchecked. It prints fine if this box is checked. However, we need to have this box unchecked on the Windows print queue in order to make a software called “Byrequest” from Hillary Software on the Windows box to work properly. Any feedback or suggestion is appreciated.

    TIA

      well.. are they windows based instructions that the unix box is receving? Are you doing ip printing, with a print server? If your using like a 2000 print server, check the box were it says spool all jobs before printing. Try that.. reply back

      Pretty sure this can be resolved easy.

      Just create 2 printers called different names.

      I normally SHARE one, and tell AIX to use for example

      10.10.10.1 QUEUE NAME SHARE

      Where the sharename is the queue name that unix uses

      This works fine on our print server

      SAMBA
      install the sambe server on the network server
      install samba client on the *x machines.
      make the *x machines use samba ( aka smb ) for a device access to printers/scanners
      the smb server will translate the *x to widerstalk so that the winders based printer will understand the job it’s smarter ( unix / aix ) cousins sent to it.
